Grow In Grace!

|Grace Baptist Church 2014 Spiritual Life Journals|
The Universal Law Of Stupidity says, “Do The Same Thing Over And Over Again Hoping For A Different Result.” Are you tired of trying harder, and feeling guilty with very little honest to goodness change in your life? The solution is not difficult or even complicated. The Bible says in Hebrews 11:6. “But without faith it is impossible to please him: for he that cometh to God must believe that he is, and that he is a rewarder of them that diligently seek him.” The Faith that it takes to please God is found in only one place according to Romans 10:17 “So then faith cometh by hearing, and hearing by the word of God.” Nothing spiritually will really change in any of our lives unless we get more committed to a deeper and more consistent relationship with our Bibles.
For over a decade now our church has furnished our members and friends with a very valuable tool to help in developing a deeper walk with God. Next Sunday, January 5th, on the first Sunday of the New-Year once again this tool will be made available free of charge to all in attendance here at Grace. Our 2014 spiritual life journal will be given out next Sunday evening for our annual Vision Night Service. Let’s Grow In Grace together in 2014.
To Grow In Grace requires that you and I allow God to change us from the inside out as we meditate upon and absorb God’s Holy Word in our daily lives. To ignore personal Bible study, weekly attendance in Sunday School, Sunday morning church, Sunday evening church and Wednesday evening Bible study is purposefully planning spiritual failure or at the very least continued mediocrity. With God’s help, 2014 can be the greatest year in the spiritual life of any believer who wants to become a Joshua 1:8 kind of Christian.
Resolve to get into God’s Word every day in 2014. Make it a priority to faithfully attend and get involved in the weekly services of your church. If your church does not have Sunday evening and a midweek service, challenge your pastor and the leadership team of your church to get out of their comfort zone and seriously consider becoming a 3 service a week church. Maybe you should even consider finding a new church that does not just cater to a Sunday morning only approach to the Christian life. Don’t forget that “What You Do With The Bible Determines What God Does With You.” My personal challenge to you is make 2014 the greatest year yet in your spiritual life by taking your relationship with the Bible to another level.
For the next 12 months here at Grace Baptist Church we are in fact Ready, Roused and Resolved to discover the personal potential in all of us as we Grow In Grace. For the first quarter of 2014 our monthly church themes are:
January 2014 – Discovering The Power Of Grace
February 2014 – Developing The Passion With Grace
March 2014 – Displaying The Praise For Grace
